At our February meeting a quiz was organised with Eileen and Marian
at the helm (as Roger and Joyce were absent due to a family bereavement).
Much laughing went on as three possible answers were given to each
question, which in some cases were rather risque, and Eileen's interpretation
made for more humour.
The team of Richard's Rovers (Yes Rovers not Ravers) comprising
of Richard and Wendy Grainger and Alan Smith won by a very small
margin of two points.

on a Wednesday afternoon between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Get together with

The national Awareness Week campaign runs from 6th to 13th April and
as usual Peter Hobson will be organising collections outside two supermarkets.
The first will be at St Peters Co - op on Tuesday 8th April
and the second wil be outside the Grande Marche Co - op store in St
Helier on Saturday 12th April. Peter will need a good number of helpers
for this and if you can spare say two hours or even just an hour please
give him a call on 724660. This is your opportunity to give something
back to the society which nowadays does a great deal for the members.
Our next meeting will be at 8 p.m. on Tuesday 25th March at Communicare
as usual. Unusually we will have two speakers, so that you will get
double value! Even more unusually both speakers are from our membership
and firstly Pam Turner will talk to us about the P.D.S. funded Brain
Bank. Both sufferers and carers may donate their brains for medical
research into the causes of Parkinsons and normal brains (unaffected
by P.D.) are needed for comparative tests. Secondly Marian Pitt will
talk to us about tinnitus and the work of the local society, of which
she is the chairperson. This should therefore be an interesting evening
and we hope to see you there.
